“This’ll be a hit,” said Radio Times on 13 May 2007, heralding a brand new comedy on BBC3. How right we were.
Tonight, Dave shows the first three episodes of Gavin & Stacey, the series that turned James Corden and Ruth Jones into superstars, netting two Baftas to boot in 2008 (one audience award, while Corden picked up a best comedy performance gong).
It gets off to a mildly lascivious start as long-distance sweethearts Gavin (Mathew Horne) and Stacey (Joanne Page) first meet, flanked by their pals Smithy and Nessa (writers Corden and Jones). Then we settle down into the earthy, affectionate portrayal of close friends and family that was the recipe for a modern classic.
First episode of the comedy about the romance between a couple with differing cultures and backgrounds. Gavin and Stacey have flirted for months on the phone at work but have never met up - until she travels from Wales to London to see him. Mathew Horne and Joanna Page star alongside Rob Brydon, Alison Steadman, Ruth Jones and James Corden.
